Domestic security also means freedom of the individual. Only those who do not have to fear crimes and live in a peaceful environment can develop. However, this also means that the state must keep out of the private lives of citizens. There will be no screen searches based on suspicion. Video and photographs taken on motorway bridges will no longer be stored. RFID data of vehicles will no longer be recorded and stored and deposited in citizens’ movement profiles.
Video surveillance is permitted at danger points, bus stops, railway stations and airports and only the data set will be stored permanently for which there is suspicion of criminal activity. In other respects, the data must be deleted. The area covered by video surveillance must be clearly marked by floor lines for each citizen, so that they can decide for themselves whether to become part of the recordings or to choose other means of transport. At the same time, the lines serve the purpose of preventive warding off of danger since everyone must know that they are now being recorded.
Freedom of religion, and respect for those of other faiths, is a matter of course. Everyone is encouraged to engage in inter-religious dialogue. The common ground for standing up for the Federal Republic of Germany is to be emphasised to the extent that all religious communities can regard this country as their home as long as their views are compatible with the Basic Law.
In all legislative procedures, the German Ethics Council will be permitted to make presentations on the respective projects from the Ethics Council’s perspective. To that end, the Bundestag shall grant a spokesperson of the Ethics Council the right, on request, to make the Ethics Council’s viewpoint known in a plenary session on the legislative procedure.
All members of “Jetzt Demokratie” are committed to the restoration of the free democratic basic order and recognise that only peaceful means of conflict are accepted.
Restoring the functioning of the German economy and cultural life is an overriding priority.
